people around calling out the republicans, especially mitt romney for this two year super imaginety myth? >> i don't understand, really, the republicans in congress and elsewhere have been saying that for a long, long time. i've never understood why the democrats don't beat back on that more aggressively than they do. i don't understand why steve croth let romney get away with it last night. this democratic as an adjective drives me nuts. it's intentional and meant as an insult. that's a side point, i guess. you put the two -- >> it just gets your goat, i can tell. >> yes it does. for viewers who don't know, that's what joe mccarthy used to call the democratic party the democratic party. >> it is meant as a pejorative, but younger viewers might not know that. >> in your daily beast column this weekend, you wrote: >> you also say in that same column that you are starting to feel sorry for mitt romney. what have you been smoking michael tomasky? >> i gave all that up long, long ago. i can never confirm nor deny. in just this one little way i do feel a teensy bit sorry for him. it's not tha

this is starting to become a bit of comedy of errors. if governor romney and republicans, i like karl rove and he is a smart guy to say the least, if anyone believes you will win this election talking about foreign policy over next 42 days they are on drugs. you will lose this election. you can not win this because it is not something the american people will buy. one, not one of their top issues and they will not believe the president is weak on foreign policy and national security after he killed bin laden. it is not going to happen. jon: but what about, i mean, nancy, bin laden, yes is dead as the president will remind you over and over again, but if this was an al qaeda offshoot group that killed our ambassador, it suggests that al qaeda is very much alive. >> on the anniversary of the worst terrorist attack this country ever, ever suffered through. it was done on 9/11 and they appeared to buy the, the opponent's line that it was based on a video, rather than it was orchestrated, even though the libyan government said they had clearly warned our government that the threats were increased and

campaign. president obama and his republican challenger, mitt romney, both favor expanding charter schools, support standardized tests and want more accountability from teachers and principals. but the two men have significant disagreements. >> i think some of the main differences between governor romney and president obama when it comes to education come in the area of school choice. governor romney sees a ry robust rule for school choice and school improvement whereas president obama like a lot of democrats has been skeptical of vouchers. >> reporter: romney supports taking federal dollars for educating special needs and low income families, known as title i funds and giving them directly to parents in the form of vouchers. although romney avoids using that word. >> for the first time in history federal educati funds will be linked to the student so that parents can send their child to any public or charter school of r choice. >> reporter: the obama admistration is staunchly opposed. why not expand vouche? why not give parents more choices? >> the goal can't be to remove one child from t
's why republicans don't want to take up the issue of foreign policy. mitt romney said i would have put the sanctions in place earlier. i'm not sure that's a bright line in the sand as far as the american voter is concerned or real foreign policy watcher. >> his position appears to bes the same as the president's position. with peter alexander yesterday or maybe in the 60 minute minutes interview asked if what mitt romney wants to go to war with iran he should say so. >> he has advisers that do. if you look at the people that surround mitt romney there are many of the same sort of neocons that surrounded george w. bush and are -- maureen dowd wrote a column about this. they tend to favor an empty vessel candidate to give this ideology to. mitt romney is that nonideological guy and these guys maybe do want a war with iran, john bolton's that are in mitt romney's camp. please them or be rationale. >> i thought as i was watching his convention speech, going along, saying he's doing a good job, this is an a-minus, b-plus speech, and then he veered into foreign policy in the last few seconds
: a lot of the republicans and the chattering class has been saying come on, governor romney, campaign with paul ryan. today high is in ohio. >>reporter: they will be here together in a couple of minutes. this is the first time they have been together in a month since the day after the republican convention. that is leading a lot of people to say they don't think ryan is being used to his greatest potential and he needs to be turned lose in the campaign. this morning, in cincinnati, congressman paul ryan seemed to be right on point as he tried to turn once reliably republican hamilton county, red again. >> we have problems and they are getting worse. here is what leaders are elected to do. if you see a problem, solve the problem. don't blame other people. get in there, use your principles, be honest with people about the problems facing the country and do something about it. that is not the kind of leadership we have right now. >> now governor romney making his appearance here at the wright patterson airfield, his big plane rolling up at the same time that congressman ryan is coming up
during accusations from republicans, including governor romney, that president obama's policies have not slowed iran's nuclear march. >> let me be clear: america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy. we believe this is still time and space to do so. that time is not unlimited. make no mistake, a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained. it would threaten the security of israel and the stability of the global economy. that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >>shepard: the president has been under fire for not meeting with binyamin netanyahu or any world leaders. despite multiple requests from netanyahu, the president did not set a red line on iran's nuclear activities. that takes us to our chief white house corporate following the president on the campaign trail. the president says the united states will always stand up for freedom. there are limits to america's influence. >>reporter: it is rare to have the two major candidates in the same city, a mile and a half apart. the president is at the u.n.
. the romney camp says they're responding in kind. the fact romney and republicans have done better with older voters might give them an edge stereo typically on early voting. folks that don't feel like leaving home. but when they tell reporters they're not targeting a specific demographic, that does give a warning sign. you have to be highly targeted. it's not just election day, it's election weeks. and so right now is voting day, every lost vote the romney campaign has is not a good turnout for their model. >> how important is is this early voting for you when you make that decision on where to spend money? >> early voting is pretty important and when you consider the fact that this places like north carolina, people are voting and can vote every day and other places like nevada, speak are starting to go to the polls. it really matters. the ground game really matters and the president's put a lot into the infrastructure to make sure the campaign is set up in field offices across the country. but the other thing that matters is what's happened in the news from day-to-day and when you look at
of weakness that's not what he's been as president, it's forced the republicans and romney and his campaign to have -- to assume that posture of being from the right and being more hawkish than obama. they've had to go way far to the right and you talk about this rhetoric on iran. wk tam become far ome more to obama's rit so there's a distinction there this is the way you have to talk and starts sounding out of the mainstream which it is >> the reagan carter dynamic is something they have doubled down on. paul ryan yesterday singhis and i'm reminded of 19 and tean, which is a wild, wildly grossly inaccurate -- >> always 1979 -- >> yes. >> instead of morning in america it's 1979 tehran. even today mitt romney in his cgi spch talking abo rean ag ao raises taxes. >> reagan would have been a rhino in this republican party. the irony doting on the ghost of ronald reagan is he could not have survived in the current iteration of the republican party. ronald reagan said no to war with the soviet unn. ronald reagan actually sd y toucbe of nuclear weapons in both sides arsenal's. ronald reagan was a
that the president speaks to heads of state on a regular basis. republican presidential nominee mitt romney delivered his own foreign-policy address across town at the clinton global initiatives. >> if there's one thing we learned in this election season it is that a few words from bill clinton can demand a lot of good. >> mitt romney said that he wants to change the u.s. foreign aid system, requiring countries that take development money to remove trade barriers and allow u.s. investments. >> we will couple need with trade in private investment and partnerships to empower individuals, in courage innovators, and rework entrepeneurs. >> mitt romney said that these reforms could bring stability to the middle east and other developing countries. randall pinkston, cbs news at the united nations. >> in the future californians will be able to register to vote on the same day as the election. governor jerry brown signed a bill making it legal, although this will not be available for least a couple of years. currently california cut off water registration 15 days before an election. governor brown will sign
, mail delivery could be drastically cut. >> out on the campaign trail, president obama and republican presidential challenger, mitt romney, both in new york city today. the president making his case to the united nations. romney still making his case to you and me. >> president obama is urging fellow leaders to take a stand against violence in the muslim world. >> i do believe that it is the obligation of all leaders, in all countries, to speak out forcefully against violence and extremism. >> speaking to the united nations general assembly, president obama condemned the antiislam film sparking protests overseas, but said nothing justifies mindless violence. the president also had a message for iran and its developing nuclear program. >> make no mistake, a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be detained. it will threaten the security of gulf nations and the stability of the global economy. >> after the president's address, he headed across town to speak to former president, bill clinton's gathering of global leader. that's where gop presidential challenger, mitt romne
, if mitt romney or a republican president said someing ke that, the mainstream media would be on fire. >> that's true. that's true. >> or as willie likes to say, fuego. >> i can't count as many times as willie has said that. to my mind, that's t mos instthing, because i don't think president obama thinks what's happening in the way you've put it are bumps in the road. i don't think that mitt romney really, really belies that 47% of americans he's not going to -- if he becomes president he's not going to worry out. iner -- i think we're in -- at this point in the campaign, we're in a war of phrases. and context is hugely important. and you have to judge these guys, i think, on their whole campaigns, their whole lives, and -- >> so is it safe to say that presidenobams aoar n a candidate in 2008 when he told people, you know, if i talked to the leaders of iran. if i'm nicer to them than george w. bush was nicer to them. i'm embarrassed to be an american and the day i get elected, they' going tbe r . waat naive? >> let's find all the wrong words to use. >> yes, the way that's characterize
four years. meanwhile, how is it that the romney campaign and republicans in general have allowed romney's taxes, and no one is even saying that he broke the law and yet that's been the headline week after week after week have been somehow the republicans have been railroaded into talking about this when really 8.1% unemployment, that's not helping anyone. 47 million people on food stamps, those are the issues. the middle class is not being helped right now. >> what the middle class is concerned about is what most people in the country are, worried about how they're going to pay for their kids' college tuition, how they'll save for retirement, how they'll deal with health care costs and there are a lot of working families having difficulty getting through the end of the month. >> how do you put the tax discussion to bed with mitt romney's own personal taxes? you need the media to back down or something? >> it is what it is with the media. >> you got to beat obama and the media. >> that's exactly right. you're running against two people. >> no truer words said, joe. it is the media
speeches at the united nations and the clinton global initiative where his republican rival mitt romney also offered some remarks. and in a breathless day of nonstop talk and travel, mr. romney has just arrived for a rousing event in ohio where he's desperately hoping to claw his way out of a substantial polling deficit. there are sign mrs. romney may be coming to his senses after joking at the clinton global initiative that he could do with a little help from a former president. >> if there's one thing we've learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of good. all i got to do now is wait a couple days for that bounce to happen. >> right, we'll keep our eye on that. the other bump that romney loves to talk about these days is his attack on the president for saying the middle east would face bumps in the road and romney's suggestion that the president was somehow referring to the deaths of the american ambassador to libya and three other diplomats. a theme that romney reiterated today though in a more muted form. >> syria has w
